Sheila Stewart, who worked as news director at WPEG-FM in Charlotte, was killed Thursday morning in an auto accident in Atlanta.

Stewart, a Great Falls, S.C., native and Benedict College graduate, had been working in Atlanta for Bethesda, Md.-based Radio One and was on her way to work when she was involved in the collision.  Radio One General Manager Chris Wegmann confirmed her death to WRC-TV in Washington, D.C.

Stewart, who spent 20 years in broadcasting, was news director for Radio One’s five Washington stations and the syndicated “Russ Parr Morning Show.” Before going to Radio One, Stewart was a well-known figure in Charlotte media as a reporter and anchor at WBTV (channel 3) in addition to WPEG’s news director. She was an adjunct professor at Johnson C. Smith University and instructor at the Chatty School of Communications.

Stewart also worked for ABC Radio and Syndication One Radio and programs hosted by the Rev. Al Sharpton Michael Eric Dyson Show and Warren Ballentine.
